Review for United Community Ministries, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with UCM. I find it to be an excellent resource for those in need in our community. The wide range of services (food pantry, early childhood education, workforce training, etc) is a great safety net for our community. Services are provided with a great amount of compasion and caring. Contributions are managed well and spent to help those in need with a small administration cost.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

I participated in UCM's homeless walk, holiday room and food pantry. This is a caring well-run organization that helps our local familes in need. UCM is helping with food, utilities, job training, child care and so much more. The parents who come to the holiday room were so grateful for the help so that they could give to their children. They also received holiday food. It was a meaningful experience for me and UCM helps people daily with their needs and helps people to help themselves through job skills! It is an organization you would be proud to be a part of!

Role:  Volunteer & Helped parents with choosing gifts for the holiday room. I helped stock the food pantry. I helped organize a group to walk and raise funds for the homeless.

This is my favorite charity because UCM helps those in need while ensuring each family's personal needs and dignity. The services help families and children with housing, job training, children's education, food, clothing, utilities and more.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped families choose appropriate gits for the holidays. I helped sort food to distribute to families in need.
